Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Behind the Green Monster: Red Sox Myths, Legends, and Lore by Bill Ballou fans will relive the most exhilarating and heart-wrenching moments in Red Sox history, while also separating the facts from fiction. Numerous myths are dispelled once and for all including, including why the Curse of the Bambino never existed, why the Game 6 loss in the 1986 World Series was not Bill Buckner's fault, who was the real key to Boston's ninth-inning rally in Game 4 of the 2004 ALCS, was Curt Schillings bloody sock a fake, did Johnny Pesky ever hit a ball off the foul pole named for him, and did Ted Williams really hit a ball of the head of someone sitting 37 rows deep in the right field bleachers. From Yaz's miraculous September in 1967 to the Manny Ramirez trade, the most famous and infamous moments are all combined into one volume. Behind the Green Monster delves into those headlines, sets the record straight and gives Sox fans many reasons to celebrate their strong allegiance to their beloved Red Sox.

Synopsis:

During almost 20 years of covering the Boston Red Sox for the Worcester Telegram & Gazette, Bill Ballou has been an eyewitness to the inner dynamics of this storied franchise. His account of the ups, downs, failures and triumphs of the Sox will bring new insight to even the most knowledgeable fans. This book is packed with details and tidbits that could only be gleaned from rubbing shoulders with players, coaches, and managers. It will amply reward any fans who reads it.
